Produces hoplites that defend your city from attack.
- This building regularly spawns hoplites, and several Army buildings can quickly overwhelm your gods. Destroy them as soon as you can.
- Alternatively, if you have Aphrodite, more enemy troops can be a good thing. Using the Charm Units ability ensures a fresh supply of friendly troops every few seconds.
- Troops need to travel to meet the Gods in battle. Spread these buildings around your city so that at least some troops will always be close to where you need them.
- Make sure you have a good mix of Defensive buildings as well as Army buildings, otherwise you will be very weak to Aphrodite's Charm Unit ability.
